Applying Functional Medicine in the Treatment of Neurological Disorders

Inflammation is now recognized as a pivotal factor in neurological conditions such as Autism, Attention Deficit Disorder, MS, and Alzheimer’s.  There is a connection when the autonomic nervous system networks the central nervous system and senses their environment is hostile. Such an environment is connected to impairments in central nervous system functionality. Two other critical factors are the mitochondrial function involvement in brain health and the role of neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that take nerve signals across synaptic gap between a sending and receiving neuron. One individual nerve cell can possess 50000 synapses. Neurotransmitters are more accessible than the neurons and subject to internal and external abuses. Mood, pain, pleasure and mental states are determined by specific neurons in the brain. It is believed that depression results from shortage of serotonin neurotransmitters and possibly low cholesterol levels.

Getting functional medicine lab test work for you or your loved one, can provide the insight to the interventions to reduce chemical mediators of inflammation, mitochondrial status, determine one’s antioxidant production, absorption issues of fatty acids and nutritional markers.

Call to arrange receiving the appropriate lab test kits and get started on discovering how your body is functioning and request a customized protocol to implement as biomedical intervention to balancing your body.
